Abstract


A malacological fauna survey was done in the Katana region in South Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo were intestinal schistosomiasis (Schistosoma mansoni) was signaled. Sampling was done in 23 Streams using the technique of Olivier and Scheirderman (1956). About 14 species was collected: Biomphalaria pfeifferi (Krauss, 1948), Lymnaea natalensis (Krauss, 1948), B. forskalii (Ehrenberg, 1931), B. globosus (Morelet, 1866), P. ovata (Olivier, 1804), Tomichia kivuensis (Mandahl-Barth, 1974), Tomichia hendrickxi (Verdcourt, 1950), Lentorbis junodi (Connolly, 1922), Segmentorbis kempi (Preston, 1912), Potadoma ignobilis (Thiele, 1911), Potadoma freethii (Thiele, 1911), Ferrissia burnupi (Walker, 1912), Pisidium casernatum (Poli, 1791) and Physa acuta (Brackenbury et Appleton, 1991; Draparnaud, 1805), in which 5 species (Biomphalaria pfeifferi, Bulinus forskalii, Bulinus globosus, Physa acuta and Ferrissia burnupi) are recognized as intermediate effective or potential host of schistosomiasis (Schistosoma manasoni and Schistosoma haematobium). The ecological characteristic of the species in the Katana region are present in this work.

Abstract: (french)


Une enquête malacologique a été réalisée dans la région de Katana, Sud Kivu, République Démocratique du Congo où la schistosomiase à Schsitosoma mansoni a été signalée. L'échantillonnage a été réalisé dans 23 ruisseaux suivant la technique proposée par Olivier et Scheiderman (1956). Au total, 14 espèces ont été récoltées : Biomphalaria pfeifferi (Krauss, 1948), Lymnaea natalensis (Krauss, 1948), B. forskalii (Ehrenberg, 1931), B. globosus (Morelet, 1866), P. ovata (Olivier, 1804), Tomichia kivuensis (Mandahl-Barth, 1974), Tomichia hendrickxi (Verdcourt, 1950), Lentorbis junodi (Connolly, 1922), Segmentorbis kempi (Preston, 1912), Potadoma ignobilis (Thiele, 1911), Potadoma freethii (Thiele, 1911), Ferrissia burnupi (Walker, 1912), Pisidium casernatum (Poli, 1791) et Physa acuta (Brackenbury et Appleton, 1991; Draparnaud, 1805), parmi les quelles 5 espèces (Biomphalaria pfeifferi, Bulinus forskalii, Bulinus globosus, Physa acuta et Ferrissia burnupi) sont reconnues comme hôtes intermédiaires effectifs ou potentiels des schistosomiases (Schistosoma mansoni et Schistosoma haematobium). Les caractéristiques écologiques de chaque espèce sont présentées dans ce travail.
